Aim: Always be friend(s) with your parent(s) / child(ren)
Who we are:
The Calusa Tribe is one of the tribes in the Eola Federation, and we are all affiliated with The National Longhouse Program - Native Sons & Daughters. Calusa is primarily fathers and daughters.
What we do:
We are a tent camping group. Once a month, October through April, we gather together at a campground in the Central Florida area. Typically, we meet at a campsite Friday after school/work and break just before lunch on Sunday. No prior camping experience is required. Join us, have some fun, enjoy the outdoors, relax, and make new friends. We have all the cooking equipment needed to prepare our meals, and all dads share in meal preparation. The food is great! All you need to bring is a tent with sleeping gear, a cooler with drinks, and snacks.
Commitment and Cost:
Any level of commitment will benefit the relationship you have with your daughter. We do not have meetings, we do not have merit badges, we do not sell cookies. We go camping and spend quality father-daughter time. Male siblings abound as well. There is no requirement to camp any certain number of weekends during the year. We have families who never miss an outing, and those who camp whenever possible. The cost is around $125 per camp out, and includes 5 meals.
